Researchers working with lab grown human stem cells believe they have discovered how the Zika virus may cause microcephaly in fetuses.
A new study reports small amounts of genetic materials from the Zika virus can be detected in blood samples taken from pregnant women after the infection has passed and when fetal brain development is underway.
Researchers report the Zika virus may also be tied to an automimmune disease that attacks myelin similar to multiple sclerosis.
Researchers unravel some key features of Zika virus on the developing brain.
A new study confirms the Zika virus can be sexual transmitted.
Researchers have confirmed a key way in which the Zika virus causes damage to fetal brains.
The Zika virus migrated from the mother's bloodstream and into the placenta, where it multiplied and spread into the fetal circulation before infecting the brains of fetuses in mouse models of the disease.
Researchers have genetically engineered a clone of the Zika virus strain. They believe the development could expedite research of the disease.
